  • Generously add cream.
  • Make a second layer with the graham crackers (lay out the crackers going in a different direction than the first layer).
  • Continue until you have five layers (don’t add any of the chocolate soaking to the top of the cake). Cover top and sides of cake with remaining cream.
  • Take the remaining crackers and with a rolling pin, crush them in a bag.
